As I am in an Inquiring mood this week to
wards my Republican friends, I would like to
further ask them If they think the employment
or Gen Butler as an agent in the eaiuua'gn has
paid ! Is It now their'opinion that the $10J,000
and more that be bus received irorn them has
been well invested? You will see I have iti
crea ed the amount considerably from what it
was as stated in a previous letter. The original
bargain was for $50,000. Gen Butler with bis
accustomed quibbling smartness, says this was
not made on board the Tallapoosa. I never
said that it was.- Mv in formation was to the
effect that Mr W E Chandler came to Ports
mouth on board the Tallapoosa to make it.
That be did make it I have evidence which i do
not doubt. My informant now tells me that
$50,000 did not prove to be enough. - It cost
Butler a great deal of money to organize his
faction and provide it with funds with winch to
operate all over the states of New York, Con
necticut, New Jersey, Indiana and Michigan, to
Vy nothing of Massachusetts. When the $50,
VtK) gave out he went right on, putting in mure
nnvnev uuiil the money expended ran up to
$110,000. Mr Parsons was correct when he
said that part of this was paid in checks on the
New York bank with which the Republican
national iurtitTT did. iliusinesS -Jiut-Jtb

a mistake to go into the state, ami Butler so

Well, things are-settled at last and Burling
ton like tbe rest of tbo world is obliged to ac
knowledge that Cleveland is to be president. I
don't know that anyone feels particularly bad
about it except tbe office-holders'. Republicans
may condemn Edmunds as much as they
please for bis lukewarmness, but they wilt
most of them now coolly admit' that Blaine's
nomination was an unfortunate one and that be
was a bard candidate to carry. Party feeling
kept the mass of tho party together in this state ;
as in others, aud if it had not been for tbo
Burchard jiasoo just before election, tbe stal
warts' treachery In Oneida county, and tbo St
John movement, if only one, I say, of tbo.-e im
pediments bad been out of the Republican
pathway, Blaine would have c trried New York, .
and been e ected. llinc ill.te lachrymae t

matters. If not in the whole state.
John Jame Shea and Elliott Matiricj Sut- '
ton, will undoubtedly b8 remembered in the
disposal of federal patronage, and mmy others
too numerous to mention. As to what will be
done with such Independents as the famous
Clint Kingslcy and his fellow-lunatic Capt Hare,
time alone can tell.
The suit of divorce brought by 0 A Burton
against his wife, has been dismissed, and things
stand just as they did, except the parties are
poorer and ihjir lawyers are richer. TUeu?
property rights will be settled, probably, by the
supreme court.
